Tools to make your Instagram life easier
You can run your Instagram solely from the app, but sometimes you need more functionality or need more in-depth information. For that, there are tools to help, such as these ones:
I’ve used all three of the above platforms and personally think Buffer is the easiest to use.
Post creation and editing
- Layout app (Google Play and Apple Store)
- Boomerang (Google Play and Apple Store)
- Repost app
- Flixel – Cinemagraph tool
- Canva – No-code design tool
Out of these tools, I’ve used Layout and Canva. I’m familiar with Flixel, but have not used it.
I have never used hashtag research tools, instead preferring to use the built-in search on Instagram. I use a specific hashtag strategy (which I’m explaining in another article!), so I find I don’t need these tools to get great engagement from hashtags.
